Commit to Fit and Week 6 Weigh In

So I have been casually mentioning the Commit to Fit challenge I have coming up, so I figured I should give you a little more info on that and what it is :)

The Rec Center in my town is putting on a "Biggest Loser" style weight loss challenge that I decided to participate in. For 8 weeks, I will be a part of a 3 person team working with a personal trainer twice a week and participating in a weekly boot camp. We will be meeting with a nutritionist and weighing in weekly. At the end of 8 weeks, the team with the biggest percentage of weight loss wins a prize, and the top 3 "biggest losers" win prizes too.

I am so excited to start this challenge! I am excited to test my body and my strength by working out harder than I ever have. I am excited to prove that I can do anything I put my mind to, and I am excited to have a team of people with the same goals that I have. I want to win. More than anything I want to win :)

I have set a few goals for the challenge to keep me on track.
  1. I want to do this challenge 100%. I will go to every work out, eat everything I am told to, and not cheat. I know this will be my greatest challenge, to not quit if its hard, or come up with some excuse not to work out. If I don't, I am not allowed to buy anything for our house for 6 months. Any time I deviate from the plan after the first time, I lose another month. This might not seem motivational to some, but this would be the hardest punishment of my life. This is a huge reason for me to succeed. 
  2. I want to lose at least 2 lbs a week, for a total of 16 by the end of the challenge. I am currently losing an average of 1.5 a week, so I am confident I will be able to do this. For losing 16 lbs, I get to buy a new outfit :)
  3. I obviously want to win :) I don't care what the prize is, I want it. Winning is a huge motivation to me, and I will work my ass off to do so. 
  4. I want to run a mile. On top of my personal training and boot camps, I want to run 5 days a week. By the end of the program, I want to run a mile.
  5. The program includes a weekly pass to use the gym. I will use this time to take different classes to keep things interesting. I want to find what work outs I like to keep myself motivated, and I think variety will keep things interesting :)
So there you go! I am so excited to start! Last night we had our pre program testing, and I am so ready to get those numbers down. Tomorrow night is our first meeting and I get to meet my teammates and trainer. I will update weekly how its going on Tuesdays so look forward to that :)

Oh yeah, I weighed in yesterday too :) This week I lost another 1.8! I am thrilled by this progress! :)  When I stepped on the scale, I was really shocked to see I was really in the 250's! I havn't been in the 250's in 5 years! This is a very exciting milestone for me :) AND I also hit 5% at WW! I decided to update my progress numbers to match my Weight Watchers weight. I post pics of my tracker, and I didnt want you all to get confused. And honestly I am proud of how far I have come, and I wanna show it off.   My next goal is 10% which is 27 lbs! I am so excited to hit that and keep on going!! :)

Have you ever done a weight loss challenge? How did you do? What motivates you to succeed? Do you prefer rewards or punishments (we call them Carrots and Sticks)? Any advise? Truth be told, I'm a little scurred :)


  1. Congrats on the loss! I'm struggling to get out of the 240's and I cannot wait until the day that I do (hopefully soon!). The challenge sounds great and you seem to have an excellent plan in place. Good luck!

    1. You can do it! Maybe change something up? Keeping things fresh helps me stay on track!

  2. Congrats on the weigh-in! That's fantastic :D

    1. Thanks! Your progress on the Diet bet was super inspiring! I can't wait to host one for all of our readers :)


I would love to hear from you! Have something to say? Say it here!
